Includes Fingering Charts for the Recorder and Piano, a Harmonic Note Chart and Free Online Audio Tracks of all the songs! A Musical Adventure! To begin a new adventure, an explorer needs a map. Many individuals would like to start a musical journey, but the inability to read musical notation holds them back. This Music Pattern Song Book was created to give those brave souls a place to begin. It's Easy! All one needs to do is match the color blocks or letters in these musical song patterns to an instrument, and beautiful music can be made. This book works well with xylophones, glockenspiels, recorders, hand bells, piano, harmonicas and more! Any instrument that can play an eight-note C to C scale can be used with this book. Fingering Charts for the recorder and piano are included. All of this book's song patterns are color-coded AND letter-coded, so as long as you know the fingering for the notes of your instrument, you can play along. In these song patterns, it is illuminating to see a visual representation of the sounds that you hear. Each song has structure and repeating patterns, but each one is unique. If you are a student of music theory, these colored patterns may give you a new perspective on the way music is put together. A Place to Begin! Many parents and classroom teachers feel unequipped to teach the next generation about music because they had little opportunity to learn themselves. Sometimes, older adults who missed the chance to play an instrument when they were younger are determined to begin. Music therapists are often looking for tools to bring music to their patients. Children delight in banging the keys of a percussion instrument but need some help to know what to do next. Yet, where does one who has not yet learned to read musical notation begin? Most people can match colors or letters, which makes color and letter coded music song patterns a good place to start. In this book, the songs progress from easy children's tunes to more complicated pieces and duets. Duets are included so that groups can make music together! Benefits! It is well documented that learning to play a musical instrument stimulates multiple areas of the brain. It also enhances eye-hand coordination and balance. It can increase math ability and improve reading and comprehension skills as well as listening ability. Playing together in a group boosts leadership and team work skills and teaches discipline. Music fosters self-expression, creates a sense of achievement, relieves stress, and promotes happiness. For Musicians of All Ages! Starting a new activity, no matter what your age, takes courage, resources and support. These song patterns are provided to make it a little easier to take that first musical step!

Children of the Fifth World

A Guide to the Coming Changes in Human Consciousness

Author: P. M. H. Atwater

Publisher: Simon and Schuster


Category: Body, Mind & Spirit

Page: 272

View: 302

Our species is evolving in preparation for the new world on the horizon • Explains how the increase in intuitive, creative, and abstract-thinking abilities of children as well as incidences of ADHD, dyslexia, and autism signal evolutionary changes at work in humanity--the emergence of the Fifth Root Race • Connects the appearance of these traits with ancient myths and evolutionary calendars as well as predictions by Teilhard de Chardin, Edgar Cayce, and other visionary seers • Reveals how these “new kids” act as agents for world change by reflecting back every misguided aspect of business, politics, religion, and culture The past 30 years have seen a quantum leap in the intuitive, creative, and abstract-thinking abilities of children as well as an unprecedented rise in incidences of ADHD, dyslexia, and autism spectrum disorders. As P. M. H. Atwater explains, we are witnessing evolution at work. The changes in consciousness and brain function evident in these “new kids” signal the widespread emergence of the Fifth Root Race and, fortuitously, coincide with our transition into the Fifth World. Providing a resource for parents and new kids themselves, Atwater explains what is happening to our species and our world--from neurological changes and climate upheavals to the drive to be constantly “connected” through screen-based technology and the unnecessary widespread use of drug therapies. Sharing individual case histories underscoring the traits of the new-child personality, she reveals how these children, born with universal consciousness encoded in their DNA, act as agents for world change by reflecting back every misguided aspect of business, politics, religion, entertainment, technology, and culture so we can’t ignore what needs to be repaired. Atwater shows how children labeled as autistic or otherwise “damaged” have enormous potential for greatness. Connecting recent events and cultural shifts with creation myths, evolutionary calendars, and historical records from every culture as well as predictions by Teilhard de Chardin, Sri Aurobindo, Edgar Cayce, and other visionary seers, Atwater shows how the genetic shift now occurring follows the “Rule of Thirds” in its progression. Exploring timelines for the next several hundred years, she explains that the coming new world will be tailored specifically for the new kids, who will lead the way in the Great Shift from old world to new.
